Women Deacons: Transforming the Church
March 8, 2013 - 7:00pm
As part of the Glasmacher lectures, Saint Paul University is pleased to present Phyllis Zagano's lecture, "Women Deacons: Transforming the Church." Admission is free.
Zagano is currently senior research fellow at Hofstra University and adjunct professor in the fields of Catholic Studies and Celtic spirituality. She has published 15 books including most recently, Women Deacons: Past, Present and Future, co-authored with Gary Macy and William Ditewig. Her groundbreaking work on women deacons, Holy Saturday (2000), was commissioned by John Cardinal O'Connor from New York. Zagano also writes a regular column for the National Catholic Reporter entitled Just Church and recently received the St. Catherine of Siena Distinguished Lay Person Award from Voice of the Faithful.
Zagano’s lecture will be followed by a panel of respondents from the fields of canon law, the Eastern churches, and the Montreal group, Femmes et Ministères. Following general discussion a reception will take place in the Normandin Room.
The Glasmacher Lectures fund the invitation of distinguished researchers whose presentations lead to reflection and to deeper thinking about social issues in order to offer new reflections on the transformations taking place in the world today.
